East Brookfield Reviews

East Brookfield is a small rural town. It's centered around the community. There is only an elementary school in town, which is very very good. After that, they must go to the surrounding districts. Not too much of a hassle considering how small a town it is so it's not far to go to other places.

Small little quiet town - nice place to live - I was a former resident and I really love the small town feel and at the center of town has the lovely Lake Lashaway - There really is no bad section of town and it's been nice for many years. I rode my bike on the streets of E Brookfield as a teenager and frequented the Apple Orchard - you can't get much more of a warm country feel than East Brookfield - I may move back there someday.
